The Heart's Appeal (London Beginnings #2) Reviews
Remember ‘The Captain’s Daughter‘ that I reviewed last summer, June to be exact? Yes, it’s been more than a minute. I knew when I chose to read this book that it was a continuation of that series but it didn’t really sink in all the months later when I read the book. Suffice it to say, this book reads really well as a standalone but I strongly urge you to read the first book in the series. And then, like me, wait with baited breath for the next one. If you recall from book one there are three da ...more

History lovers are in for another treat with this second novel in the London Beginnings series from Jennifer Delamere. I love the way that history often surprises us when we dig past the layers of generalizations, by revealing characters who were very forward-thinking for their time. Such is the case with Dr. Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and her husband James Anderson, both of whom are actual historical persons and secondary characters in this novel. Although their role in this story is minor, the ...more
As much as I enjoyed “The Captain’s Daughter”, “The Heart’s Appeal” really struck a chord with me. Being book two, it can be a standalone, although Rosalyn’s story does make an appearance as a potential spoiler for book one’s ending. “The Heart’s Appeal” touches on many of my interests from the get-go: women’s life in the nineteenth century, the practice of medicine, and educational studies. Julia Bernay makes a captivating heroine; she is an independent, forward-thinking woman who challenges th ...more
The Heart’s Appeal is the second book from Jennifer Delamere’s London Beginnings series. I really enjoyed the first book of the series, but loved, loved, loved this one! I was hooked as soon as I was introduced to Julia Bernay. What a strong, determined, and independent woman for her time in history. She was not going to let anyone take her down. What a fabulous way to introduce her to the other main character, Michael Stephenson. She is his hero. How awesome is that?
It seems to me Jennifer Del ...more

Julia Bernay is the epitome of a strong character. She is intelligent, graceful ...more
